Whoever replaced the shoes has probably damaged the sensor by knocking it or has taken it out,[dont have to] and not plugged it in again. im picking it has been knocked. they dont like that too much.and that will cause the light to come on. or the brake pad wear sensor [on the rhr side] is damaged or not re installed. & the strange noise could be incorrectly adjusted shoes or not installed correctly.

ABS light comes on sometimes. Hear rubbing noise coming from the rear of my 2007 F-150 when accelerating from a dead stop.


Abs is your break system, have rear breaks checked. Might be time for new brake shoes on rear of truck. Les swab tires will inspect for free, and lots of other automotive and tire outfits. You want to jump on this soon, so not to end up going past brake shoes and then will ending up having to buy other parts, drums etc...please let me know if my trouble shooting was right. Thanks mike

Does the abs sensor have to come off to change rear brake shoes on accent?


hi from the uk in answer to your question you do not need to disconnect or remove the abs sensor you just remove the brake drum from the hub then remove shoe locating springs that retain shoes to backplate then lift off and remove bottom return spring this then allows you to slip the brake shoes off w/cyl at top complete with spring and auto adjuster ? then to remove the handbrake cable just pull the shoe and the quadrant lever apart so cable can be lifted out of the hook up on lever ? you can now interchange shes/springs /adjuster on your bench ? also run te adjuster wheel back on thread to off position this will enable you to fit shoes back to backplate and moreso help in fitting cable to its hookup ? when brakeshoes are refitted ? and centralized on back plate ? you can manuall rotate the adjuster wheel and keep tryin the drum for fitting and rotating with no binding trial/error method when satisfied ? refit screws to secure drum then do same with other side when completed you must bleed both wheels this will improve b/pedal your handbrake will also be better/less travel when applied hope these instructions help you ? best wishes from uk

Sporadically, the rear brakes on my 1998 Chevrolet Silverado 4WD truck will lock up with the slightest pedal pressure. Today the problem repeated itself and was accompanied by a loud electronic sound. My...


if you have abs the electic noise you hear is most likely coming from the abs modulator. as for the rear brakes intermittently locking up, the most common problem is overadjusted rear brake shoes, under adjusted rear brake shoes, or excessive brake dust inside the drums.

Brake pedal vibrates while braking and doesent stop right away


There's speed sensors at each wheel. You may have got some contamination in front of one of them... sounds like the abs is trying to compensate for un equal speed at each wheel... and something may be blocking a proper read at one of the wheels...

Traction control problem!


bad wheel bearing.will make noise and mess with sensors,or if had a brake job done caliper maybe loose to cause noise,if a drum which most are not you have parts rolling around in it,have seen it all.
traction control and abs use same sensor,you could have debris in caliper a little pebble between brake shoes and rotor will cause issues.

ABS Light


I would not ignore this problem. Some damage has been caused to your braking system, i doubt if is is as simple as resetting the abs sensor. You should have the wheels removed and the suspension and braking systems fully checked over either by yourself or a competent mechanic .as the grinding sound could be a symptom of a serious safety hazard.

Driving on a flat could have buckled the rim or damaged the discs, steering or suspension.
